PDMP update

POSTED IN: Legislative Updates,

The Senate gave first round approval to SB 74. This is Dr. Schaaf’s version of the PDMP. MOCEP along with other medical societies does not believe that this is a good bill. It likely would not allow us access to any useful information in real time in the emergency department. It is also unclear that it could be implemented successfully. It would also restrict cities and counties from developing their own programs. SB 314 (HB 90) is on the calendar to be debated. This is the version of the PDMP that we endorse. Please contact your Senators to make sure the good version gets through.
